The III Molecular Simulation School


Horacio Serna, NaMeS PhD student, participated in the III Molecular Simulation School organized by the Spanish Molecular Simulation Network. The Molecular Simulation School was aimed at introducing Master or PhD students to the basic tools of Molecular Simulation, from the foundations of Statistical Mechanics to (and very specially) Monte Carlo and Molecular Dynamics techniques, including the basic software elements for an adequate use of these techniques.

During the School, Horacio Serna attended to the lectures concerning  the use of operating systems of Unix distribution, specially Ubuntu, the basis of Fortran 95 programming and theoretical and hands-on sessions of Molecular Dynamics and Monte Carlo simulation techniques.  The most of the staff in charge of the lectures and the organization was from Institute Rocasolano in Madrid, which belongs to Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC). On the other hand, the event was a good opportunity to meet the co-Supervisor of Horacio Serna, namely Dr Eva Gonzalez Noya. During this meeting Horacio Serna  discussed with dr Noya the current stage of his research and the future plans

The III Molecular Simulation School was a wonderful experience in which Horacio learnt different approaches to perform molecular simulation, to optimize the programs and to discuss with young and senior researchers about topics closely related to his research project.
